How To Wear Patterned Jeans

It’s nice to have a couple patterned jeans to mix in with all the solid-colored jeans in your closet. The trick is to make them the main focus of your outfit. BUT that doesn’t mean the rest of your items have to be boring. Here I’ve paired a solid-colored, pastel button-down and muted grey shoes that play off of and work with the pastel colors in the pants. I add a bright pop of red with the purse (which has a fun bow on it to add a little something extra). The untucked shirt gives the outfit a hint of edge but tucked in also looks good (a more pulled together look). The length (hits right at the ankle) of the jeans makes them perfect for heels or flats.

I added a couple different jacket options. The first is a cropped, grey, leather jacket; the second is a brown blazer, with a tiny houndstooth-esque pattern. You might not think that the pants and the blazer would work together but, surprisingly, they do (the pattern of the jacket is small enough that it doesn’t compete with the more pronounced pattern of the pants), which just goes to show you that sometimes you have to try something on before making a judgement. The sleeves of the jacket probably need to be tailored a bit, but you can always do a little roll (or scrunching up) of the sleeve if you have a jacket that’s too long in the arms.
